stimulus, inflation fears, oil up more not so much on fed but news out of opec that they are going to leave their production ceiling in place even though they are out producing what the ceiling is now. that has been a little bit bullish for prices in oil but nothing much coming out of the fed any time soon. they need a pizza or something. cheryl: you never know. we could get a couple surprises when it comes to the language. you never know how they will react. >> as a predictor, as a predictor they are not predicting anything. absolutely right. we will be here to go crazy when it does. cheryl: i want to bring in scott marden, united advisers chief market strategist and take this to the equities perspective, talking a lot of action at the cme today. when it comes equities you have the dow up five days, traders waiting to see what the fed will do. it is all about extending the bond buying program. if we get a number below -p$45 billion which seems to be the threshold expectation, what do you think the stock market might do? >> probably sell off. if you are an equity market lover you have to li
. >>> an oh beck minister, important events. opec ministers are in vienna. >> why vienna, by the way? >> i don't know why they originally set it there, but it seems like as good a place as any. have you been? >> i have not been. >> i don't think i've ever been to vienna. i always wondered about that. >> i mean, it's better than meeting in, i don't know, skokie, right? they're expected to retain its 28 million barrel a day output target. but the real drama is likely to be about leadership, the world's leading oil exporters are expected to argue about who should be opec's next secretary general and we have candidates from iran, iraq and saudi ara a arabia. they're all competing to replace the current leader, as you can see there. abdallah salem el badri, he's 72 years old and he's been there for years. i don't know where i've been for five years, but did you know -- >> i apologize in advance. i didn't. >> you could have said you did and we've been best friends, in fact. >> he's completely changed the entire operation. anyway, did a great job. >> in global market news this morning, stocks in asi
supply among a number of non-opec countries. you see the u.s. obliterating the rest of the world. employment des moinin oil and gd to the highest level in 1992. we still provide a tiny sliver just under 200,000. the net oil imports are craters and a now a number of analysts predict in the near future the u.s. is producing more oil than any other country in the world. by round 2020 a recent international agency reports that the u.s. is predicted to become the largest oil producer and starts to see the impact of new fuel efficiency measures and transport. it results in a continued fall in u.s. imports to the extend that north america is a net oil exporter around 2030. yes, that's right. the united states, which is according to the spokes people from the coal industry already the saudi arabia of coal, which is now essentially tied with russia as the single largest producer of natural gas in the world could find itself the world's biggest oil producer on a consistent basis for the first time since the first half of the 20th century. in energy circles you hear the phrase saudi america
two years, around where it is today. that as opec announced today it will not raise the ceiling that it puts on oil exports of 30 million barrs a day and gas prices are still determined by global oil markets. i maintain that mark will see another economic renaissance and in part due to the domestic energy boom. just don't expect prices at the pump to fall anytime soon. if you're sick of slow internet connections at home, listen up. netflix, the on demand home movie provider depends on high speed connections for its customers to watch their movies. now netflix is starting a new series of monthly ratings of internet providers and the service -- the services with the fastest connection will edge google fiber rated number one by netflix. the speeds it says are 16% faster than number two verizon fios. comcast was number three on the list. here is the problem with google fiber. right now it is only available in kansas city, kansas. too bad, virtually nobody lives there. folks across the city in kansas city, missouri are out of luck for now. from the cnn money newsroom in new york, i'm
supporter of facing compliance. we want to smooth the transition from an opec, unregulated market to a transparent regulated market place. as chairman bachus said if i can quote you, you want to make it operational, sink together and function. so in the midst of that implementation and its of pasta, it's a natural order of things that many market participants have sought further guidance. sometimes the questions, early. but as all of us know, as we're all in school at one point, sometimes we do our papers late come into the night, the day before it is too. and that's just human nature. we will address questions that come up early, and will do our best to address them even if they come up late. prior to a milestone on october 12 commend this milestone was just because the sec and s. -- the cftc finished the foundatiofoundatio nal definition rules, the definition of swapping swap did and so forth went into effect on october 12. we got a lot of those questions, some early, some late. along with my fellow commissioners and staff can we sort through about 20 issues, and i think we sort
. it required outstanding diplomacy and -- to balance the risks and demands of peace in the sort of opec security environment of the cold war period, which perhaps, perhaps most people to remember but perhaps some do not. so, before turning the program over to marvin though, i would just like to mention, we have a new book that's very pertinent to the subject, the reagan-gorbachev arms control breakthrough, edited by david t. jones, and dedicated to ambassador, the late ambassador maynard whitman, who was the principal inf treaty negotiator and leader of or inf delegation. and copies of this book are available at the baca the room for those of you who would like to purchase one afterwards. so without further a due it's my pleasure, to wish all happy holidays and to turn the program over to marvin. marvin? >> thank you very much, this. it's always a pleasure for me to be asked to come here to moderate a panel. my life has been absolved with the foreign service for an awful long time. though i only work in the foreign service for a year and a half. 1956-seven and moscow. but since that tim
's where crude oil breaks out to the upside. we start to get an upward trend. opec's 2013 target is around $100. i think we'll move up into the mid-90s and probably press through that $100. one of the burdens we have is we do have an abundance of supply in the u.s. the u.s. won't export any crude oil, but i think the possibility of us starting to consume more, would drive and help support those higher prices. >> when you put on those longs, i'm wondering, because this week is a holiday shortened week. congress is coming back on the 27th. is this a trade for 2013? >> yeah, it is more of a trade for 2013. i wiould start to look at fartherer out contracts, to like december 2013, and play the entire year's action, just by being long that one contract. but i would strongly wait until after the beginning of the year, because of the weaker volume, the lack of participants. and i think that the price is really going to shop around. >> nat gas prices taking a step back. what do you see in the immediate future and what is the main catalyst here? the weather seems to be sort of calm. >> yeah. that's
